One Response to “Prepositions in the Christmas Tradition”

  1. So, what did you receive this year?God has been good to me this year. I revcieed Grudem’s Systematic Theology, two books by Mark Driscoll (The Radical Reformission and Confessions of a Reformission Rev), two books by C.J. Mahaney (Humility: True Greatness and Living the Cross-Centered Life), Mark Dever’s Nine Marks of a Healthy Church and J.I. Packer’s Knowing God. That’s just books alone, but I won’t go into the unnecessaries.What was your favorite gift?Oy tough one. I haven’t read them all yet so I’ll have to reserve judgment on that.What did you learn this Christmas?It’s so much more beautiful to serve and emphasize the Gospel than to look at the marvelous traditions that we keep. It sometimes just deepens the traditions.
